Red Curry! In a slow cooker! Is there anything better than dumping everything in a slow cooker, setting the timer and calling it a day?
No. The answer is no. Slow cookers are the best invention for days when you want a home cooked meal, without the cook part.
Red Curry has quickly climbed to the top of my recent favorite dishes. It probably has something to do with the 4, count them 4, Thai restaurants in a three block radius of our condo. Have I mentioned how much I love city living?
So, that many options nearby means Thai take-out a few times a month, typically rotating between sesame noodles or red curry. I will drink curry sauce if needed too; it’s the perfect blend of coconut creamy, red chili spicy, soy sauce salty, and brown sugar sweet.
This month’s recipe redux theme is “Spooky Spices”- you know those spices that lurk in the back of your spice cabinet, that you bought for use in a recipe years ago and have been too scared to touch since?
For me, I used to be fearful of Thai & Indian type meals. I loved to eat them, but didn’t have a clue where to start in my own kitchen. After lots of flops, I’m now pretty confident in my ability to take on Thai. In fact, I now sometimes prefer my healthier spin over takeout- especially when recipes are this easy.
While this sauce could easily be slurped on its own, it’s the tastiest vehicle for beans & vegetables that I can think of. Each bowl contains a full serving of vegetables and protein! Don’t wanna slow cook? No problem! Simmer the sauce and add the vegetables. Cook on low for 30 minutes until vegetables are tender.
